The celebration of the WSD was recommended during the World Conference on Science that took place in Budapest in 1999. The first celebration was held in 2002 and each year the UNESCO releases a specific theme. In order to promote responsible use of science and underline its essential contribution to peaceful society, from 2010 to 2020, the WSD has been dedicated for Peace and Development, as a decadal theme, aiming at linking science with society.

In Rwanda, celebrations started in 2009 and were organized annually by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Rwanda National Commission for UNESCO (CNRU). Last year the celebration took place on 9thNovember, 2018, in UR-College of Agriculture, Animal Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Musanze District, Northern Province.
